Berger copper ridge roll is made from 10" stock, 16 ounce. We make a ridge roll from 12" stock, 20 ounce (http://josephjenkins.com/store/product.php?productid=16397&cat=341&page=1). We have made custom ridge from 16" stock as well.

Well, actually I am building storage sheds, 10 x 12 and 8 x 12, with a 10-12 pitch roof and am offering slate as an optional roof. I am planning to use a saddle ridge, but wanted the information on copper in case a customer requests it. Can't wait for someone to order one so I can gain first hand experience with slate!

I rip 36" sheets into 12" strips to make rolled ridge. It provides about 4.5" of coverage on each side.

Why not just slate the ridges? I've only used copper on one, by request, spec'd by others, as a sub. I believe it was 8" x 8".

I am new to slate roofing, and although I have read the two most common books on the subject, I do not recall seeing dimensions for copper ridge widths. In searching for rolls of copper, I have come acrosss many 16 inch widths. Do slate roofers use the entire 16 inch width when fabricating ridge copper, or is some other dimension used, like half of 16, or is 8 inches too narrow (4 inches on each side of a ridge). I guess I am asking, what is an appropriate width dimension for copper ridge.
